I have two of these seatsavers and they do work as described. I like that my car will no longer have indenatations caused by the bottom of my booster or car seats. Plus, the bottom is wide and does catch debris from my children, again saving the upholstery of my car. In the same token, because the bottom is wide, I cannot fit 3 people in the back seat of my Honda Civic anymore. I have my newborn in the middle with the seatsaver and had to scoot her over a little bit to allow my other child to buckle her seat which leaves half a seat left on the other side. My older child's complaint was that she had a hard time buckling her seat belt because of the seatsaver sticking out and could not fit another seatsaver for her to use while she was using her booster seat. This product is right for you if you have seat space to spare.
Couldn't ask for a better product, prtoects my leather seats and most importantly keeps the base in position, otherwise it slides around and loosens up. The pockets are a perfect place to store things that need to be kept out of sight.. like the extra binky's!
